Mo Salah is criticised more often by Reds fans than any other player according to a new study conducted by Casumo (via the Daily Express).
Having analysed tweets on derby days last season using an algorithm designed to work out which players cause fans most stress before, during and after matches, Salah was determined to be the most criticised Reds man with 34 negative tweets per 1000.
Salah came seventh in the Premier League with the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Harry Kane and Eden Hazard all criticised by their fans more often. Paul Pogba, however, was one place behind Salah, having apparently been criticised less by Manchester United fans.
West Ham’s Pedro Obiang, at 93 negative tweets per 1000, came top of the pile.
After Salah, the most criticised Liverpool players were Dejan Lovren (22 negative tweets per 1000), Divock Origi (14), James Milner (13) and Roberto Firmino (10).
We’re not sure what to make of this. How accurate can the study be? Given that it only analysed derby matches, that’s quite a small sample size to use.
